Zipcar Reveals “Special Edition” Pride Month Cars; Donates $1 Per Hour to LGBTQ Organizations Across the Country
At Zipcar, our car-sharing movement has always been about building community. We believe that should include everyone so, since our inception, we have proudly supported LGBTQ organizations and Pride events as a way to accelerate change. As long as we live in a world where these rights need to be defended, we will continue to support all those in the LGBTQ community and pledge to drive equality forward.
This year, Zipcar Pride programs will be launched in the following cities:
